Fake News Debunked: Senate Intel Report Found NO EVIDENCE Russia Hacked the Vote in 2016

A newly-invented Russophobic trope that has circulated throughout the fake news over the past week is the notion that Russia hacked all 50 states during the 2016 election cycle based off of the findings in a Senate Intelligence report, implying that their interference was the reason Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

News entities such as the New York Times, Esquire, PBS NewsHour, CNet, Daily Beast, Yahoo News, and many others have ran misleading headlines to gin up the Russian threat. Some have claimed that Russians “hacked” all 50 states, others say they “targeted” all 50 states, but the narrative is clear: Be very, very afraid of the evil Rooskies, and their threatening behavior against our democracy.

Left-wing journalist Michael Tracey, who is one of the few liberals with the courage to speak truth to power regarding the Russian collusion hoax, cited the report itself to expose the dirty tricks of the smear merchants in a series of tweets.

Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Christopher Krebs dismissed the alleged threat while appearing on Capitol Hill in 2017.

Once again, the fake news is relying on the ignorance of the public to create false perceptions about the threat Russia poses to our democratic elections. Meanwhile, Google executives are being caught bragging about how they plan to manipulate their algorithms to prevent the re-election of Trump in 2020.

If there is a real threat to electoral integrity in the United States, it is coming from Big Tech not Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin.
